Awesome Almond Milk

I make a different plant based milk every few days to mix things up for nutrition and flavor diversity. But, unsweetened almond milk is my go-to, because it's loaded with nutrients, is alkaline, mild in flavor, and rich and creamy. Commercial almond milk is widely available, and is fantastic as a convenience product for use in recipes. But, is largely bereft of nutrients, and often contains additives and preservatives. With homemade almond milk, you can control the quality and…

Vegan Chocolate Chile Pudding

Hello, my name is Tess, and I am a chocoholic. My sister says, “A chocolate a day keeps the grouchies away.” But, too much chocolate on the lips can put unwanted inches on the hips. Some time ago I suggested she switch her daily indulgence to dark chocolate so she could still enjoy the mental health benefits with less fat and sugar. She struggled at first, but embraced the dark side, and now, like me, only eats the good stuff. However, switching to dark chocolate is only Step One in…

Vegan Soy Cream from Tony Chiodo

This vegan soy cream is a delicious dairy-free alternative to conventional dairy cream, and is great served with desserts, as a dipping sauce for fruit, or a great base for pudding. Just blend in some fresh fruit of your choice, add aromatics of your choice, and chill in the fridge to allow the flavors to mesh and the pudding to thicken. I got this recipe about ten years ago when I took a series of macrobiotic cooking classes with Tony Chiodo in Australia. His gentle laid back…

Vegan Avocado Smoothie

If there was a meteor heading towards earth and I had an hour to live, I'd spend it eating avocados - guacamole, avocado pudding, avocado ice cream, avocado dressing, avocado gazpacho, avocado toast, avocado tempura, and anything else could stuff an avo into! I eat two to three avocados a day, and I have no intention of stopping. Also known as God's butter, this green goddess is full of fabulous fats that are mostly heart-healthy monounsaturates that tame toxins; neutralize acids,…

Berry Good Crumble With a Disclaimer

I can’t eat enough nuts and berries. They make my desert island list of can’t-live-without foods. I almost went berry nutty all the way to the bathroom last summer over-indulging in this berry crumble. I started making this crumble years ago when I was a college student. I'd keep it in the fridge as a study snack. I revisited this trusty recipe a few years ago much to my husband’s delight. Rob eats his “Blueberry Smash” (frozen blueberries, cottage cheese, natural yogurt, and raw…

Omega Blueberry Blast Smoothie

I could be coaxed into surrendering my teeth for a blueberry smoothie. I used to enjoy a version of this blend every day until I learned to mix things up. I then switched to drinking a different green smoothie every day. But, for today, let's be nostalgic and embrace this blueberry blast – that blends up berry well. High in fiber, low in sugar, and with a quota of high-efficiency healthy fats, blueberries metabolize like a low-GI fruit regulating blood sugar while they sweep toxins out…
